Overview

Is it up to you to provide staff training?

When you suddenly find yourself responsible for training but are unfamiliar with how to make it happen, you’re an accidental trainer.

The good news is that even without any formal training background you can improve your skills to the point that you can develop and deliver training that is both job-relevant and effective.

This Webcast delivers a wealth of practical, no-nonsense advice that will help you understand what works and what doesn't in a variety of training situations. You’ll discover the basics of producing training programs, where best to apply limited time and resources, and simple ways to measure the effectiveness of your efforts.

What You Will Learn

For 60 minutes you will explore simple yet effective strategies for developing and delivering training to your employees, including:

• What you need to know about how people learn, so you can develop their skills
• How to determine what your staff needs to know to improve their performance
• How to figure out the best way to help each individual learn
• Tips for making it interesting
• How to measure if your training efforts are successful

While attending the Webcast is complimentary, reservations are required.
